Nazi-Hunter’s Wife Long Shot Presidential Wannabe

Monday, February 27th, 2012

The German-born wife of French Nazi hunter Serge Klarsfeld, Beate, has been nominated Monday by the Left party as a candidate for the German presidency in next month’s elections.

The 73-year-old Klarsfeld will compete against former East German pro-democracy activist Joachim Gauck in a March 18 vote by a special parliamentary assembly.

In 1968, Beate Klarsfeld became famous after slapping then-West German Chancellor Kurt Georg Kiesinger, who was also a former Nazi party member, in Berlin.

Germany’s most recent President, Christian Wulff, was forced to resign in a corruption scandal.
